The objective of this research is to create and test an herbal face gel for cosmetic uses that is comprised natural
ingredients. A local market was the source of the amla (Emblica officinalis), masoor dal (Lens culinaris), and
rose petals, which were then dried, powdered, geometrically mixed, and chemically evaluated as well as for
organoleptic and physicochemical evaluation. Four separate mixtures, designated F1 to F4, were created using
different ratios of components such E. officinalis, L. culinaris, rose petal powder, and polymers. All of the
produced compositions were evaluated using a variety of metrics, including preformulation studies, pH, viscosity,
spreadability, drying time, stability, statistical analysis, and an irritancy test. The viscosity of F1, F2, F3, and F4
was observed 15101.3 ± 0.55,149 44.9 ± 0.91, 16721.3 ± 0.90, and 16931.5 ± 0.96, respectively, and the pH was
observed 5.4 ± 0.1, 5.6 ± 0.07, 5.5 ± 0.03, and 5.7 ± 0.1, respectively. The one-way analysis of variance approach
demonstrated linearity for all answers at P ≤ 0.05.
